WOW ... now that's a friend to have!!!!!

Bob is the one that likes the Peanut Butter Tandycakes and they are Jeanne's favorites too. We keep some frozen for her for the few times she comes to visit when nice guests bring them to us.

I like the chocolate Tandycakes and the Cherry Tastypies.
I also like the chocolate creme filled cupcakes.

Thanks so much for thinking of me and the family!!!!!!!

Teena- did you get my message that my local supermarket starting carrying Tastykake products? My boys really like the Peanut Butter Tandycakes. I also got some sugar free Orange spongecake kind of thing that my older son liked.

I got some extra boxes, 1 chocolate and 1 PB and froze them as you suggest.

TIA! nancy
I stayed CL last aug at AKL and didn't check in on line. You are checked in upstairs for CL on the CL floor. At BC they have a desk right outside the Lounge.

Fireworks view from the Yacht Club

This is probably a little late in replying about good views for Illuminations but I hope it helps. I was at the Yacht Club in October - wonderful stay and has made me change next year's reservation from the Grand Floridian to the Beach Club (no water views at the Yacht Club on the Disney UK site in early October!)

I was in room 3005 which was as far towards the Boardwalk bridge as it was possible to go. The view of Illuminations was perfect!

Thank you for all of the information you share on this forum, it's so helpful!

Was it a water view that you had booked at YC?

Nancyg56.....

Just wanted to say hello. Me and my dh are also checking in on Thanksgiving. We are also in a standard club level room. We are having our Thanksgiving dinner at Captains Grill at YC. We haven't checked in on line.

Ahhhhh.... such troubles to have, such troubles
Don't miss out on the rest of the world! We travel to other places all the time, and have a great time. Of course, WDW is still the kids' favorite, but I just try to identify the things we love about WDW and plan other trips accordingly. For trips with kids, our list includes nicely decorated and themed resorts, lots of active things for us to do, great customer service and good restaurants with interesting menus that still welcome our kids. It just takes a lot more time and research to put non-Disney trips together. So far, we've found that combination in many different places - NYC, DC, Boston, Martha's Vineyard, Chicago, Seattle, San Francisco, LA, Newport Beach, Florida beaches, Mexico, Canada, Alaska (OK, that was on our Disney cruise), Monterrey, Santa Barbara, Park City, the list goes on! But for an anniversary trip, Napa would be at the top of my list.

Not sure if prints are what you are looking for but they actually sell those at the Marketplace. We purchased a print of the BC by artist Larry Dotson at the AK.

One last question... any idea what the Garden View is like? Will we be over a parking lot? Do they ever upgrade views when you get there?

Just wanted to add my plug for the garden view rooms - love them! It's less expensive than water view, but guarantees you won't be overlooking a parking lot. Some are better than others, but we've always found something good about our garden views. If we're looking at shrubs during the day, for example, we look up and see the Eiffel Tower and fireworks at night! Our favorite garden view is the one we had last month - second floor right near the lobby and overlooking the courtyard and a little bit of SAB and the lake. If booking GV in the future, I think I'll request full balcony, close to lobby.

As for the transition from GF, GF is the only deluxe resort left on my bucket list - I've stayed at all the others. Having stayed at all the other MK resorts, I can definitely say that the Epcot area is my favorite. I like to walk and would rather walk to parks than wait for a bus, boat or monorail. And we love ADRs in Epcot, so the walk home to BC just couldn't be easier or more pleasant. We also prefer the decor at BC - that's one of the reasons I've not convinced my husband and three boys to sacrifice one of our favorite resorts for GF yet! Hope you love BC as much as we do!

Checked into BC CL Saturday and were suppose to stay until this Sunday but yesterday afternoon we got a call that my MIL had passed away. We had to quickly pack and make the 10 hour drive home. CL staff worked hard to get us checked out and bell service was amazing they quickly got us loaded. I did get to meet TeenaS Sunday, so sweet and beautiful. I was VERY dissapointed in guest services as they kept insisting that I had to bring my DH and 3 kids to the park guest services location IN PERSON to get a refund for our MVMCP tickets for last night. I explained about the death of the kids grandmother and that it would be very insensitive to bring the kids into the park with them so upset. I could just see a CM saying "have a magical day" in front of my kids. Finally the amazing wonderful ALLY from CL staff stepped in and took care of everything. We will have to deal with the disney travel insurance people to try to get some of our money back from all the days we missed but we can't deal with that until later.

Thanks so much for the info/explanation. I really appreciate it. I am sooooo a creature of habit... but...habits are meant to be broken. We still have two little ones who enjoy MK... but they also love HS and Epcot. We are looking forward to trying out BC. Love your explanation of garden view. They will love SAB if weather permits. Thanks again. DH and I love walking... we walk so much that we definitely don't gain weight on Disney vacation (even though we eat like there's no tomorrow.)

I'm so very sorry for your loss. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family. So glad the CL staff was able to help you.

I can't believe it's just over 2 weeks until we leave!! I've been stressing about our park strategy and how to maximize our time in the parks, but it turns out I was stressing for nothing...my awesome travel agent has created detailed touring strategies for each day of our trip, with lots of helpful ideas tailored to our planned park days and ADRs. Just reading about all the rides and about some of the new Fantasyland attractions (Belle!!!!!) is getting me SO excited! I can't WAIT step into the YC and feel the Disney magic!!

Ok, enough gushing. Thank you for letting me share!!

The price changes constantly... has something to do with the seasons. There are high season prices, low season prices, holiday prices, close to holiday prices. I can't figure it out to save me.
